X-Men: Apocalypse concept art shows off alternate character designs

06.24.2016

X-Men: Apocalypse Bryan Singer Oscar Isaac Jennifer Lawrence Tye Sheridan Banner

When the first image of Oscar Isaac as the titular villain of Bryan Singer's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE was released, many fans unfavorably compared him to the Power Rangers baddie Ivan Ooze, but the mutant almost had very different and more comic book accurate look. Jerad Marantz, a concept artist on the comic book movie, recently shared several pieces of early artwork for Apocalypse on his ArtStation page, however Marantz didn't say how close his design came to being used in the DAYS OF FUTURE PAST sequel.

Another concept artist on the film by the name of Joshua James Shaw also got in on the action by posting alternate designs for Tye Sheridan's Cyclops and Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique on his Facebook page, which you'll also find below. What are your thoughts on these unused X-MEN: APOCALYPSE character designs?

I would have preferred this to what we got..

Mystique's costume really calls back well to her comics costume--as much as I love seeing a nekkid blue woman running around, this is WAY cooler... Apicallypse looks much more like himself here. Sure, he might strut...but its better than the refrigerator costume we ended up with--still like the actor regardless. Scott would have really been much more memorable with the yellow straps, like this concept art shows too...really close to the comics again, but not cheesy at all. I feel like, in the

I think Apocalypse looked better in the film, but my god Cyclops and Mystique got boned.

People would have hated on this too. He looks like he's about to strut down a fashion runway. People would've been photoshopping Apocalypse's face onto Mugatu from Zoolander.

This actually looks much better, but Singer just has the worst taste in costume design, plus he just sucks.

looks a lot more like Apocalypse. but also looks a lot more like a Prometheus Engineer. i wonder if that point was made.

i love how people are finally figuring out singer sucks (at least when it comes to superhero movies). The first xmen movie was toned down too. all black costumes. why would this movie be any different?
Im sure eventually everyone will figure out JJ sucks too - i am just waiting for that one.

This right here is EXACTLY why I'm ready for Singer to move on from X-Men

Don't get me wrong, he started it all. X-Men, X2, Days of Future Past, all great films.

But frankly I thought X-Men: Apocalypse was his biggest swing and miss since he completely fucked up Rogue from day 1. Either get new blood on board or just give it back to Marvel so we can finally see a proper incarnation of these characters.

Man, this alternate Apocalypse costume is much better looking than the actual movie one.

Thats a great design from this concept. Why the hell wouldn't singer use this one?!
I recall there being amazing concept art for the Juggernaut for X3 too that wasn't used as well.
